With the introduction of the PT2-500 mic pre and DI, TRUE Systems continues its contortionist legacy of packing immense-sounding microphone preamplification into infinitesimal spaces. Descendant of the TRUE Systems Precision 8, which squeezes eight audiophile-grade preamps into a single rack space, the diminutive PT2-500 conforms to the modular 500 Series format. Like all the other preamps in the TRUE Systems family, the PT2-500 delivers stunning detail, rich analog depth, and a robust, reliable design. But the PT2-500 is 500 module sized, for audio professionals who want everything in a rack ready to use, over and over again without buying additional power supplies and multiple racks.
NAMM: Soultone Cymbals Vintage Old School Series Cymbals Based on Drummers Requests and Involvement for a New Take on Classic Sound
Soultone Cymbals™ is proud to introduce the addition of The Old School Edition cymbals to their Vintage Series™ product line. Company founder and CEO, Iki Levy, will be presenting them at the 2010 Winter NAMM show (Booth 2979, Hall D). Developed in cooperation with Soultone Cymbals’ roster of top drummers, percussionists and their own Turkish master craftsman, this new line is based on the classic cymbals of the 1950’s and 60’s. They offer a richer, darker signature sound, and a new EarthStroke™ natural finish with deeper lathing to provide a sweeter open tone for nearly any style of music.
